That makes complete sense. Thanks for that advice.

When you scan for wifi connections on your phone, tablet or computer do you see the wifi ranger? If you do you need to connect to it using the password provided, then enter the following numbers in the browser window address bar 10.113.23.1:8080, this should open the control panel window for the WIFI Ranger from where you can configure your connections. The actual router, the piece that is mounted inside the rv can be hidden somewhere out of sight, it is not necessary to connect a computer via cable to do the setup.
The Wifi Ranger website has very detailed instructions and tutorials.

Ok so i did all that correctly. But it still wouldnít let me connect. It was saying it wasnít connected to the parks WiFi. Something along the lines of the parks WiFi was filtering or something like that. Iíll be back out in the Rv in a couple weeks so Iíll give it another shot.

Once again, many thanks.
